Reduce Your Energy Bill to…$0!
We’ve seen it all when it comes to home energy bills here in El Dorado Hills. Recently, a customer who lives in a relatively large home came to us upon receiving an energy bill upwards of $700! This may be on the extreme end of things, but the issue of high energy costs is faced by homeowners all throughout California. Fortunately, those who would like to see their electricity bills disappear overnight need look no further than a solar install.
High energy bills got you down? You’re not alone. What if we told you it was possible to reduce your monthly energy bill to as low as $0? And not to mention the savings start instantly. It may sound too good to be true, but it’s one of the many benefits of going solar.
Not very long ago, solar power was considered by many homeowners to be out of reach; a new alternative energy fit only for the wealthy. Things have changed in a very short period of time, and now solar is more approachable than ever before.
Homeowners choose to “go solar” for a number of reasons. Some are attracted to the concept of moving towards a more sustainable form of energy, as solar exists as a natural source of power for generating electricity. Others like the fact that panels and arrays require little-to-no maintenance and silently produce electricity without any fan noise or other sound pollution to worry about.
For most, however, the pull to invest in solar energy comes from seeking a drastic reduction in energy costs, and it’s one of the best cases for taking the leap.
One of the biggest concerns shared by California homeowners over purchasing solar equipment is the upfront cost. While solar projects can be costly depending upon the circumstances, there is help available that can drastically reduce costs to you.
One of these options is PACE financing, which has helped numerous homeowners in and around El Dorado Hills make the switch to solar while saving them a great deal of money in the process. Qualified applicants will be responsible for $0 down and pay as low as $99 each month for a solar installation, which means instantaneous savings and greener energy for your home.
Currently there is also a 30% federal tax credit for homeowners who go solar. You can apply this ITC (Investment Tax Credit) to your personal income taxes when you purchase a home solar system and have it installed. This credit won’t be around forever, so if you’re considering solar energy be sure to take advantage of it.
At California Energy Services, we believe that far too many people pay more than they should each month for electricity. It can seem at times as if there’s no solution to the problem other than restricting usage of lights, electronics and appliances, but the real answer is to consider incorporating solar energy. Once you make the switch, you’ll immediately begin to see the benefits other homeowners have already been enjoying for years.
